The Little Free Library helps neighbors to share books

Don and Keren LaCourse have created their own library - in their front yard at 19519 30 Ave NE. Shoreline 98155.

Using recycled and used materials to promote sustainability, Don built a small box which he installed on a post in his front yard. 

The goal of the Little Free Library box is for friends and neighbors to exchange books - "Leave a book, take a book." Don hopes that this small measure will help create a sense of community on his street.

We've received a lot of great positive feedback and hope this project inspires others to follow in this path.

The box has space around the door, to allow air flow, and prevent mold.

The LaCourse family is registered with the Little Free Library organization which has thousands of sites posted. Anyone can go on line and find a box close to them. 

Don says, "They encourage participants to share their library and story about the inspiration that led them to share their project. In our case, we are dedicating it to Keren's parents and grandmothers. All avid readers. 
"Our library has been open for three days and we've enjoyed watching others stop and exchange books and leave comments on a notebook we placed inside the box."
